Design Idea

Dessislava Vaughan's winning entry intrigues the imagination with an exquisite and extravagant necklace titled Guardians of the Forest. The artist-designer skillfully stitched seed beads to tell a fairy tale with green palette pearls and embellishments to create enchanted forest vegetation watched over by the eyes of a big central owl focal point adorned with cabochons. "It took me over a year to complete this project, so it was a huge victory for me when it finally came to life."
